    Emmanuel Acho-LB: Acho will probably end up being the top defender on the Longhorns defense in 2011 and could be one of the most sought after linebackers in the 2012 NFL Draft. Keep an eye on him because a good season next year could push him into the first round of the draft.

    Tray Allen-OG: Allen could have come out this year but he redshirted this past season due to a foot injury and has one more year of eligiblity left. Before he was injured, Allen had played 31 games at both the guard and offensive tackle position, and if he can have a solid season in 2011 and show that he’s over the injury, he could get some strong interest from NFL teams.

    Blake Gideon-S: Gideon is a very interesting prospect who, if he has a strong season in 2011, could find himself in the conversation of the best safeties in the 2012 draft class. Not only can he play the safety position well, but also, he can play special teams, which will be appealing to NFL draft scouts and general managers.
